Guam confirms 22 more COVID-19 cases
Hagåtña: Twenty two positive COVID-19 tests linked to the US Air Force Andersen Base have taken Guam’s total number of cases to 222.
Of those cases 180 are classified as civilians, and 42 are military service members, including the 22 confirmed by the Department of Defence on Saturday.
The government says there are 44 active cases in Guam while 173 people have been released from isolation and there have been five deaths over the course of the outbreak.
